Hi my passenger door handle has started not to open from the outside but works fine from the inside. But sometimes will start working again. Could it just mean needs some new grease ?


Thanks

Had it occasionally on my drivers door, then a week or so ago wouldn't open (from the outside) at all, had to climb in through the boot!!! :eek:
The outside handle didn't appear to have the same resistance as usual/passenger side. On removing the latch mechanism all seemed ok with the mechanical items, cables etc were fine.
As I'd already got a replacement latch (ordered just in case) & the door card was off I replaced the latch (easy job) & all is fine, door lock & handle feel much better now so can only assume something has broken inside the latch assembly itself.:confused:
